Muslim Ink is an online publication and platform for community-related information and services. We are focused on producing or facilitating quality and beneficial content for Muslims.
Muslim Ink’s Books section is a marketplace for Islamic and modern books offered by reputed publishers and authors. Books cover a variety of topics from Islamic knowledge to contemporary topics to fiction.
You can sell beneficial e-books or printed copies as long as you have the right to sell them i.e. you are not violating any copyright laws.

2. Set up your book(s), it’s price, category etc and click “Create Product” (“Create and Add New” is for multiple products):
a) For e-books, please select “Virtual” and “Downloadable” options. You will then get the fields where you can upload the e-book. Once a user completes the payment they will get access to download the book. You can limit the number of downloads you give to the user so the link will only work for the set number of times.
